Local Farmers' Markets

Norman Farmer's Market with ONIE

I was raised on a farm, and we always had a huge garden.  During the summer, we enjoyed fresh tomatoes, okra, small red potatoes, and corn on the cob. We would rinse strawberries just picked from the vine, and pop them into our mouths.  I can remember the taste now, after all these years.  You can taste the difference between locally grown fruits and vegetables and those available in grocery stores.  Thanks to our farmers’ markets, those Norman Farmer's Market with ONIEof us without gardens can enjoy the fresh flavor of locally grown produce.  All over the state, farmers' markets are opening. They are brimming with local produce.  Just click here for a list of farmers market that accepts SNAP benefits or your ACCESS card. This weekend, the Norman Farm Market, is hosting an opening celebration on Saturday (May 17, 2014).  It will be held at the Cleveland County Fairgrounds on 615 E. Robinson, Norman, Oklahoma, and ONIE will be there joining in the celebration. The market opens at 8:00 A.M.  We took a tour to give you a mini-preview of a just few of the fresh fruits and vegetables at that the Norman Farm Market.  The market is filled with fresh greens, asparagus, beets, tomatoes, and melons.  And of course, my favorite, fresh strawberries.  Come join us at the Norman Farm Market Celebration. You may see me popping a few strawberries in my mouth! Karla and the ONIE Team
